Saturday Matinee – The Big Lie, Bad Manners, Reel Big Fish & The Skatalites

Saturday, 6 April 2019

The Big Lie (1951). Yeah, it was propaganda, but it was also true. I went to school with a guy whose family escaped from communist Hungary in a hot air balloon. You can laugh, say that “It can’t happen here,” but it IS happening here.

Bad Manners – one of my favorite Brit Ska bands.

Reel Big Fish. They were kinda awesome.

No one could out-ska the Skatalites.

1]Freedom Sound
2]Man In The Street
3]Guns Of Navarone
4]El Pussycat
5]James Bond Theme
6]Sugar, Sugar
7]Nice Time
8]Simmer Down / Turn Your Lamp Down Low
9]Rockfort Rock (El Cumbanchero)
10]Latin Goes Ska
11]Phoenix City
12]Freedom Sound – Reprise

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday, 12 March 2016

YES. Dogs do this, especially with a nice soundtrack [via].

Dedicated to all the Social Justice Warriors out there.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more inanity.

Saturday Matinee – Pup Puppet, Eleven Roses 3D, The Skatalites, The Mighty Diamonds and The Supersuckers

Saturday, 8 October 2011

Guaranteed to make you smile. [Found here.]

Go find your 3D red/blue glasses for this one (or turn off the 3D and watch the 2D version).

Roots reggae with The Mighty Diamonds, live at Channel 1 in Kingston, Jamaica. Nice harmonies.

The Skatalites‘ classic “Simmer Down,” has great audio but a so-so video. So what, I like it.

And we’ll wrap up this babozo with The Supersuckers‘ “Born With A Tail.” (Some NSFK language.)

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more fun stuffage.


Saturday Matinee – A Baboon, The Baboons, The Guana Batz, The Aquabats, The Skatalites

Saturday, 24 April 2010

How to get a baboon to tell you where the water is in the Kalahari. Amazing. [Found here.]

The logical follow up to that video is The Baboons‘ “Drinkin’ Gasoline.” (Don’t laugh, they were on Walker, Texas Ranger, and if Mr. N says they’re awesome then they ARE awesome.)

The logical follow up to that video is more Rockabilly. Here are the Guana Batz with “Streetwise.”  Following the Guana Batz we have:

The Aquabats! Here’s a live version of “Fashion Zombies.” One last one before we go:

The Skatalites‘ rock steady ska with “Lawless Street.” Have a great weekend folks, see y’all tomorrow.

Johnny “Dizzy” Moore passed on in August of 2008, so as a late tribute,  here are the Skatalites:

Biographical info on Dizzy Moore can be found at this site (which has it’s own ska track auto play by the way.)

Joe Bennet & the Sparkletones’ “Black Slacks.”

Intermission.

Trailer for “MANtage,” coming to a theater near you. [Great find, FinPeng.]

Back by popular demand, the J. Geils Band’s version of the Marvelow’s classic “I DO.”
